The new RIP 9 Carbon handles the most challenging trails with beauty and grace, becoming the centre of attention for the embellished stories of riding feats shared over post-ride beers. Discerning trail riders are won over by the ease at which the RIP 9 Carbon pedals and the confidence it inspires when pointed downhill.
Riders piloting the RIP 9 Carbon will be continually searching for alternate lines to challenge their skills. With the ascent comes the excitement of another lap and another chance to show up the group at the weekly dirt church ride. Trails become smoother, faster, and more fun, both up and down.
The new RIP 9 Carbon features the same striking design as the RIP 9 RDO. It matches a full carbon front triangle to an aluminum rear, which packages the all-around trail capability of the highly touted RIP 9 family into a frame that performs as well as it looks. The RIP 9 Carbon utilizes the same carbon linkage and oversized Angular Contact Bearing pivots and trail specific geometry as the RIP 9 RDO.
